Scotland’s electricity production has seen huge shifts in recent years, following the closure of the last coal-fired thermal stations. In this period we have achieved a huge increase in new supply of renewable electricity.  However, today, the progress Scotland has already achieved leaves us with a different kind of energy challenge from that of most countries; one where heat and transport take on even greater significance than electricity.

Choices about the local supply and consumption of energy are broadening, and our patterns of energy use are also changing.  There are exciting opportunities to shape our future energy system, and to help tackle the challenges of climate change, affordability of energy, and the efficiency of our energy use.

Transport emissions will have reduced by around a third by 2032, through the wide-scale uptake of low carbon vehicles, enhanced freight logistics and measures such as low emission zones. 

Urban population will double by 2050 and as cities grow, so will urban transportation; congestion will increase which will have a huge impact on other factors like environment and commuting time. Cities, towns and villages are full of cars, buses, trams, trains and pedestrians and therefore need to make transport mobility smarter, reliable, green and more efficient.

Government statistics estimate that air pollution in the UK reduces the life expectancy of every person by an average of 7–8 months, with an associated cost of up to £20 billion each year. Legislation and Policies aiming to further minimise and track the impact of air pollution on health and the environment have been introduced in Europe, the UK and Scotland. 

Cleaner Air for Scotland – The Road to a Healthier Future (CAFS) is a national strategy that sets out how the Scottish Government will deliver its commitment to further improving air quality to protect human health and fulfil Scotland’s legal responsibilities.

Working in partnership, the organisations tasked with supporting CAFS are:

  • Scottish Government
  • Transport Scotland
  • SEPA
  • Local authorities
  • NGOs
  • Health bodies
  • Representatives from the Scottish transport sector

The strategy aims to achieve the ambitious vision for Scotland “to have the best air quality in Europe”.

SESSION 3 Commences: – “Accelerating Low Carbon, Connected Communities”  Chaired by SmartKlub.

Smart technologies can make our cities work better, but to face the challenges ahead including population growth and transport, we also need our towns and villages to become ‘smart connected communities’ People in towns or small villages should have the same access to services as those living in a big city. Equally, it should make it possible for city dwellers to feel the same connection with their community and local government as residents of small towns and villages. Ideally, we need every city and community to become smart; to understand the opportunities and support development of infrastructure.
